Entry Description

In 2012, I started traveling with a voluntary teaching group to rural and remote areas in Western China to photograph children under very poor living condition. The purpose of this project is to gain awareness of the situation of those kids who live in these poor areas, and hopefully someone or the government would do something to help changing the situation.

About Photographer

I studied photography at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, USA. Currently I'm working at a NGO based in Shenzhen, China. It's an organization focus on helping Chinese migrant workers. I consider myself a documentary photographer.
